Farmers And Ranchers Reminded Feb. 14 Is The Deadline for Market Facilitation Program Application
The American Farm Bureau Federation reminds all farmers and ranchers that Feb. 14 will be the last day they can sign up for Market Facilitation Program payments in response to tariffs recently levied against American agricultural exports.


“The Agriculture Department has paid $6.4 billion to farmers and ranchers affected by retaliatory tariffs. A total of $9.6 billion has been set aside for payments on 2018 production,” said Dave Salmonsen, AFBF senior director of congressional relations. “The other components include the trade promotion program, which has awarded $200 million to 57 different organizations to promote U.S. agricultural products worldwide. The program is also committing $2.1 billion to purchase products for donation. We urge farmers impacted by these retaliatory tariffs to take advantage of this program.”


Farmers and ranchers can sign up for the MFP at their local Farm Service Agency offices.
